Autumn Reflections

My attitude is a littler lighter since my last post.   While writing You Can't Always Get What You Need, I was in the middle of two very busy weeks.   My sweet sister-in-love underwent back surgery and spent seven days in the hospital, Isaac returned to traditional school after five years of homeschooling (an adjustment curve was needed), my work schedule was full and on top of that, early one morning I discovered a deceased man in my front yard from a motorcycle accident.  It wasn't pretty and without saying more, slightly disconcerting.  Isn't life bizarre sometimes?  Anyway, after the two hour crying jag I threw in my closet floor, I am feeling much better and want to dispel some concerns my friends have voiced.  I am fine.  You can barely see the scars! 

Currently, I am sitting in my favorite spot.  My front porch swing in the cool morning breeze has always been my favorite place to reflect, meditate, clarify and sort my jumbled thoughts.  My neighbors own horses and I love watching the frisky colts in the morning.  They are so sweet and full of energy....aah, I remember those days. 

Life feels a little less stressful and I think cooler weather, blue skies and the season change plays an enormous role.  Autumn is my favorite season.  I enjoy watching the Master Painter create His magnum opus.   Autumn reminds me I control nothing; a nice prod for a control freak.   This realization takes the pressure off me and suggests that life is a continual cycle of change.  I can either flow with the change or fight the change, but ultimately things change. 

If all goes as planned, I will be spending the weekend in downtown Ashville, North Carolina, with some inspiring women bloggers.  A nice respite away from the testosterone filled man-cave I lovingly call home is needed from time to time.  I am agog with excitement!  Hopefully, I will have some great photos to share.

Thanks for reading, Rosie.

It does sound like you've been through a lot lately. Sometimes change is not easy, is it?
I do hope you get to go on your trip. That sounds nice!

A deceased man in your yard. Oh my! I would not have done well with that. Oh.Oh.My!

I'm glad to hear you are feeling better...although the dead dude in the front yard would be a little disturbing. Enjoy your weekend!
